Spectator Wine Club

Wine ClubWe make an offer every two weeks – either a selection of six wines in the Wine Club or a smaller offering of four special cases of wine in the Wine Vaults. These are not cheap supermarket wines, and neither are they the expensive French classics which only the wealthy can afford. But they are all wonderful value: fine wines at good prices, discounted for Spectator readers, with free delivery right to your doorstep. Many of our wines are just as delicious as the more famous highly priced names, and they are all made with care, love and pride – none of your mass produced rubbish here. They are all tried and tested by our wine writer Jonathan Ray, who tastes around twenty options for each offer and makes a selection for our readers. Our merchants have a close relationship with our readers, and are always ready for a chat about your selection. And they'll happily change or refund anything that disappoints – which almost never happens!
